START researchers Jeff Gruenewald and William Parkin will present findings from their new report on the “Validation of the Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative” 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, at START Headquarters

The event is free and open to the public and the practitioner community is encouraged to attend. An RSVP is appreciated but not required as light refreshments will be served.

The report and talk examines and identifies indicators of suspicious activity using the Extremist Crime Database (ECDB) and the American Terrorism Study (ATS) Database at the University of Arkansas. The results of the ECDB and ATS projects confirmed that pre-incident activities occurring prior to acts of terrorism crimes do often align with 

existing Nationwide Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) Initiative (NSI) indicators.
